Talon Metals Corp. (TSX:TLO) released an exploration update on its Tamarack North nickel-copper-PGM project, noting that drilling continues to intercept high-grade massive nickel-copper-PGM sulfide mineralization.

Talon Metals Corp. (TSX:TLO) released an exploration update on its Tamarack North nickel-copper-PGM project, noting that drilling continues to intercept high-grade massive nickel-copper-PGM sulfide mineralization. Specifically, hole 15TK0219 intercepted three intersections, including 0.61 meters assaying 10.05 percent nickel, 5.78 percent copper, 27.46 g/t PGM and 1.93 g/t gold.

Other highlights include:

  • A downhole electromagnetic (‘DHEM’) survey in drill hole 15TK0219 shows an off-hole anomaly at a depth and plane angle suggesting that the Massive Sulphide Unit Mineral Zone (‘MSU’) continues to the north of drill hole 14TK0211 (see Annex ‘A’, Figures 1 and 2, DHEM Plate MPS-219-1).
  • A number of DHEM off-hole anomalies north of drill hole 15TK0219 indicate potential for massive nickel-copper-PGE sulphide mineralization to extend north of drill hole 15TK0219, along the east side of the coarse grained feldspathic peridotite (CGO). This extension would parallel the MSU found on the west side of the coarse grained feldspathic peridotite (CGO) dike (see Annex ‘A’, Figures 1 and 2, DHEM Plate MPS-163-1). DHEM Plate MPS-213-2 suggests that the MSU extends to the northeast (see Annex ‘A’, Figures 1 and 2).
  • Another set of DHEM off-hole anomalies point to potential additional extensions of massive nickel-copper-PGE sulphide mineralization striking southeast of the MSU towards the MSU at the base of the 138 Zone (see Annex ‘A’, Figures 1 and 2, DHEM Plate MPS-194-1). A DHEM plate at the MSU found at the base of the 138 Zone suggests massive nickel-copper-PGE sulphide mineralization also continues northward (see Annex ‘A’, Figures 1 and 2, DHEM Plate MPP 171-1).

Henri van Rooyen, CEO of Talon, commented:

Just one month ago, Talon announced a 167% increase in tonnage for the inferred massive sulphide resource at the Tamarack North Project. Now, the recent results from drill hole 15TK0219, along with several off-hole anamolies, suggest that further growth in the massive nickel-copper-PGE sulphide resource can be expected during future drill programs at Tamarack.
